Everything described here changes nothing because to do any of it costs money.  That's what I don't have.  However, if someone had a running 383 and some cash they would like to trade for a running 440 I could do that.  A 383, while less torque, would get me the mileage I could feel much better about and, therefore, drive my car more often.  It would not be the MPG a /6 or small block in an A body would deliver, but better than what I am getting.

I don't miss the Charger at all.  I only drive the 200 when we go some place together.  Even then I still prefer the truck

Sometimes, you just need to get another car for the sake of it. Next week, I'm having a look at possibly my next Mopar, this time something small and fuel-efficient.

However, Stevo, I tried to place a picture here that is already on file with this site.  Why can't I?

B bodies do NOT need a big block, and they need not be expensive either... I just paid 800 smackers for a ' 64 Dodge 440 318 wide block with only 74k miles and a no rust Denver body. They came with /6s as well and perform just fine since there was no emmission controls except a PCV.  Yes, if you want a 2 dr they are more, but I'm not hung up on that body style, I'm talkin' drivers here, not drag cars or show queens... I've decided I'm too frickin' old to be driving cars I don't like everyday, so I'm giving my Trooper to my son and driving the Dodge from now on.

I meant to comment on that too but forgot.  I agree with you.  I have a good buddy that own's a '69 318 Charger - cool ride!  Also, like E Bodies, the majority of B bodies were powered by small blocks - they just don't appear at shows or else their original motors are long gone!

I also lament the comment - regardless of where it's made or who says it - that certain cars are "too expensive to drive."  Cars were made to be driven, not stared at behind yellow Police tape.  The day the first mass-produced American Car was sold for more than $100,000 was a sad day for automotive enthusiasts.  I am just glad the owner of Street Rods never came to that conclusion when I was a kid - would have never seen a Deuce Coupe on the road.

On that, I almost passed out coming home yesterday - some guy was driving his '70 Challenger in Chico.  Wanted to say, "What's the matter with you???   Don't you know that car is too valuable to drive???"  Wished I had been in my Newp or the Grem at the time to be truthful.

What condition?  Does it run?  Is it an HP?  Do you have a "B" AC Bracket?  (I had one but gave it away along with the 400 when I moved here.  Frances said the motor stays in Bakersfield.  )
